POEM: Overstory

that’s my forest
— deep and dark —

but, yet, I see cracks of azure dome
through the canopy gaps,

and when it undulates
competing species wave together —

tousled by the same hand
so, even though each sways at its own rate,

it looks like one gasping organism

  1. Just half an hour ago I’ve seen Keanu Reeves on YouTube answering a question which book he would recommend and he mentioned one that he had read recently – Overstory by Richard Powers. What a strange coincidence.
